500cl bottle. Pours clear, amber. Not much off-white head. dissipates quickly. Aroma is fruity, grainy, and slightly musty. Medium body. Mouthfeel is round. Sweet in the middle, goes toward bitter on the finish. Not very complex.

sarauckelman (364) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Amber with minimal head. More malt than hops on the aroma. Starts off sweet and malty, then hoppy, and finishes with a nice grain flavor.

mingos (64) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Amber, totally clear. Large off-white head that quickly dissipates, leaving almost no lacing behind. Aroma: caramel, earthy and herbal hop notes, a tiny bit of spices. Taste: medium dry, similar to aroma; caramel base and earthy, herbal, spicy hop flavours, plus a tiny hint of iron (not in the aroma though). Medium carbonation, low-medium body, low and short bitterness. This beer is insanely drinkable. A highly recommendable bitter.

TorbenJensen (1435) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Here we have a beer that is perhaps the most appropriate type that is procured among British ESBs. It has a nice thin and very creamy foam layer. The aroma of the flower, sweet berry fruits and a little spice. Gentle and complete fullness of flavor, where flowers and berries together in a finale with tasteful English hops that puts a great edge for sweetness. Long pleasant hoppy aftertaste.

Butelka, kolejna z hurtowego zakupu "Anglików" w Lidlu Srednie wysycenie i słaba, błyskawicznie znkiająca piana. Aromat słodowy, delikatny, może zbyt delikatny. W smaku bardzo neutralnie, przede wszystkim słody, trochę ziołowości, a później nadspodziewanie (po takim początku) wyraźna i całkiem przyjemna goryczka. Nic nie urywa, ale wypiłem z przyjemnością
